Thanks Alice :)Maria, I live in Palangkaraya city right now, the capital city of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian part of Borneo Island. In this place there are lots of Orang Utan that become victims of deforestation because so many lands have been bought by Palm Oil company. and in this place, there are some Orangutan rehabilitation NGO that pick up Orangutans (that have been captured by people or almost die because they lost their place to live) and those NGO buy some island in the middle of the river to become a place of Orangutans to live. Visitors can come to these islands using boat as long as we keep our distance from them. I often come to the island just to see how Orangutans recover themselves in these islands. that is how I came to see this beautiful creature Maria :)
Wonderful shot! Could you please tell us something about how you came to see it?
Yes they are beautiful! thanks Debbie :)but unfortunately this beautiful animal is endangered. palm oil destroyed their lands and they become victims.
Great photo of such a beautiful primate!
